Foodies love to travel, and travelers love to eat. As a food-oriented travel writer, I have the best of both worlds, wandering the globe armed with a fork and a pen. Whether searching for taro-wrapped laulau on the Big Island, quaffing craft brews in Krakow or seeking offbeat artichoke dishes along California’s coastal Highway 1, I’m always ready to eat and ready to write about it.

I pride myself on writing with flair and passion and respect for deadlines and word counts. But, don’t get me started on the world’s best BBQ …beef or pork, sauced or rubbed, Memphis, Kansas City, Texas, the Carolinas …That’s a heated debate best had in person over a pitcher of pale ale with a plate piled high, a big stack of napkins and plenty of time. Sure I can capture it in 100 words but who would want to?!
